Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It was a rainy day in Boston, but Sam made the most of our time and was very friendly and accommodating. He is so very knowledgeable of Boston from the traditional history to current times. We were on the edge of our seats with the details from Paul Revere, Boston Tea Party, Bunker Hill, Harvard, USS Constitution and so many more attractions. He was just amazing and couldn’t ask for a better time to see and learn about Boston and the wealth of history. He stopped at Cheers for us and even a liquor store so we could take some beer and champagne back to our hotel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

The best ever tour. Five in our party with luggage. Sam was our tour guide. Car was spacious and comfortable. Sam really knows his stuff. Learned so much. Dropped us off at the cruise port. Took 6 other tours on our cruise and we all agreed that Sam’s tour of Boston was the best.
Thanks Sam

We had a great day with Sam. He knows so much about the history of Boston and the surrounding area. We covered more ground in four hours on the tour than we ever could have on our own. He will also stop and take pictures for you, let you eat lunch, etc. Highly recommend.

We were on a sentimental journey to Boston where we had both attended college more than 50 years ago. My husband had prepared a list of special (to us) places we wanted to visit including our colleges, and places we lived, worked, and frequented for food and fun. Sam was personable, knowledgeable, and patient and we thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him. We were surprised by the way Boston had changed after “The Big Dig” and enjoyed Sam’s telling about its construction and the cost overruns and political wrangling that accompanied it. He had many interesting stories to share about Boston’s traditional historical sites. We thoroughly enjoyed our custom tour and highly recommend Sam and The Boston Preferred Car Service

My husband and I had never been to Boston and were in town only for a few hours. We booked the tour so we wouldn’t have to spend the entire time at the airport. And we were incredibly glad we did! We got to see a ton of Boston highlights such as Paul Revere’s house, Old North Church, USS Constitution, Harvard, etc. We loved the ability to personalize our tour as well. Wherever we wanted to go that’s where we went. And however long we wanted to stay at each location, that’s how long we stayed. We really wish the tour could’ve been longer but we were limited on time due to our travel plans. Definitely want to come back to Boston and spend more time and we will definitely book another tour!!

I was traveling to Boston for my daughter's graduation with a party of seven (7), This tour was a huge part of the itinerary. I scheduled the tour weeks in advance. The company canceled the tour at the last minute, less than 24 hours notice without any explanation. Because of the numerous graduations in the area coupled with the holiday weekend, it was impossible to schedule another tour during the same time frame. Ironically, had I canceled with less than 24 hours notice, I would have been on the hook for the cost of the tour.

Please do not book and risk an 11th hour cancellation!!!

We are really sorry we had to cancel this trip with such a short notice. Some times things happens that are beyond our control. This is extremely rare, but when we have to cancel a tour, we hate it as much as you do. Employees are not allowed to go to work when they are felling sick or have a fever. One thing you can be sure about is that we always have our customer's best interest and safety in mind.

Sam, is an incredible tour guide and what appears to be a Boston expert. While he never said it, you can tell he loves this town and enjoys sharing his knowledge. Well worth the $.
